State Runner-Up (182)

The Commit
South Dakota State

“It’s in my hometown, I love the coaches and grew up wrestling with some of the athletes already on the team. The Brookings community is very supportive and involved with all Jackrabbit events and activities.

I also grew up watching SDSU duals and compete at the BIG 12 tournament and wanted to be one of the athletes on the team.”

“I just always knew where I wanted to go and heard good things about the program from coaches, athletes, and others involved with the program. And I like the direction it’s headed.”

The Others

The Keys
“It has the major I will be looking for, which was aviation, and I already like the campus.”

The Division

“The conference didn’t really have anything to do with the decision, and I always wanted to go D1; the opportunity presented itself.

The Fit
“I’m a hometown kid, so more people may show up with me being from Brookings. Also, I have a very different style of wrestling that will put people in different positions and make it more fun to watch and help others in the room.”

“Unpopular opinion, but I enjoy Folkstyle the most because I can roll around and not have to worry about exposing my back. I like to roll around a lot and do non-conventional moves most of the time.”

“It’s hard to say right now, but I still have two years to get bigger, faster, and stronger. I’m about 190 at this point.

The Now
“I need to get stronger and a better baseline defense on my feet.”

“Hopefully, 2x State Champ.”

The Future
“First, make the line-up. Then become an NCAA All-American and possibly NCAA Champ with a top 10 and possibly top 5 [team].”

“I gave it all I had, had a great time with no regrets, and made life-long friends.”

The Message
“Brookings is a great town with great people and has everything you need. The coaches are amazing and will do anything to help you succeed.

The Fun Fact
I enjoy hunting and fishing in my free time.

Deer hunting in the fall, and walleye in the spring.

I also like to wakeboard and surf.”
